Directions:

1

To remove the woody ends of the asparagus, simply grasp the asparagus spears towards the woody end & gently bend the spear…the hard, woody end will break off…place the spears in a microwaveable dish.

2

If the asparagus is limp, be sure to immerse the cut ends in water to rehydrate & crisp the asparagus spears.

3

Cover the dish with a microwaveable lid or plastic wrap. Microwave the asparagus for 1-minute increments until done…this usually takes no more than 2 minutes.

4

Divide the asparagus among plates…drizzle a little olive oil over the spears, sprinkle a little salt & pepper…serve!

Cooks' note:
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of good quality ingredients in such a simple dish…a fabulous salt, great fresh pepper & delicious, fruity olive oil will enhance the asparagus…& you will be so happy you invested in good ingredients…my advice is to go to a store where you can sample the olive oil…buy what tastes best to you…if you do not have access to olive oil tasting, click on Eataly & select one of their olive oils…I have tasted many of their oils…you will not go wrong.
